For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It’s always our self we find in the sea.

Some people wear a cross; I wear an anchor.

I'm landlocked, but I have an undying love for the ocean and everything in it. Why? I don't know. Nothing has ever fascinated me like the sea. I've always been obsessed with it, and I've found that it makes a pretty good metaphor for the life changes that come with losing significant amounts of weight. It's a huge, terrifying prospect to change your body and get to know yourself all over again - almost as huge as the ocean itself. But ...
Some people wear a cross; I wear an anchor.

I'm landlocked, but I have an undying love for the ocean and everything in it. Why? I don't know. Nothing has ever fascinated me like the sea. I've always been obsessed with it, and I've found that it makes a pretty good metaphor for the life changes that come with losing significant amounts of weight. It's a huge, terrifying prospect to change your body and get to know yourself all over again - almost as huge as the ocean itself. But life marches on whether you're ready for it or not, just like the ocean's waves. Personally, I'm sick of letting my weight hold me back.

Fitness Minutes: 10,156

My Goals:
I want to look good in cute clothes, run a 10K, go swimming (or anywhere, really) without worrying about how I look, and, after getting engaged in November 2012, look and feel amazing at my wedding!

...It would also be pretty cool to win the lottery.

My Program:
Everything in moderation.

Other Information:
If you're wondering about the part of me that's not secretly a sea captain, I am a slightly-older-than-average college student, a vegetarian, an amateur chef, and a collector of shot glasses. After a lifelong battle with my weight, I finally decided in July 2010 that it was time to do something about it, and I've been working to balance health and happiness ever since.

Welcome to the Colorado Team!!! I'm a native from Denver and love this state from the activities outdoors to the postcard pictures that our Rocky Mountains give. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!
